A woman and a black man. Do you think all women will vote for Hillary and all blacks for Obama? A am curious if a black man would vote for Hillary and not tell anyone and a white woman vote for Obama without telling anyone if their families were biased in the thought of a woman or black man being the next president?

I don't think all the women will vote for Hillary. She is too devisive of a person. I do believe that Obama will gain the majority of the African American vote (depending on who else joins the race) Hillary is going to try to gain the "soccer mom" vote by portraying herself as such, but in the end, women will base their vote on two factors; The Family, and the history. They will vote on The Family because they will want whoever is elected President to provide security for their family. They will want someone who will protect them from terrorism, and also protect their pocketbooks. They will vote for or against the history. Truth be told, Hillary has a very shady past. This is not a hidden factor but one that the media seems to forget right now.

I won't vote for Hillary if I don't like her ideas. Right now I am excited and feel yeah, she would be wonderful for the job, but...I am love with the idea, I haven't heard her ideas yet. So my mind could change if Obama is closer to what I am looking for in a President. But I am sure there will be those that will just pick because of the idea of who they are. I know someone that voted for Bush twice, for no other reason than he was a Republican. She complains just as much as I do about the shrub, but she feels you have to be loyal to your party.

I would vote for whoever i felt was right for the job. As a white woman, i wouldnt necessarily vote for Hillary. I would vote for Obama if his policies were right - and i thought Hillarys werent as good. But seeing as i am from the UK i will be voting for neither. As for telling my family who i was voting for - i wouldn't and dont! Its up to the individual who they choose. just becuase other family members are biased doesnt make it that you have to vote for who they say. How about getting a black woman in the White House!!!!! (Oprah - Not Miss Rice LOL!)

People might surprise everyone and vote on merit rather than on gender or race. When Mrs Thatcher was Prime Minister, it wasn't the case at all that women voted for her simply because she was a woman. Many women loathed her. Many admired her. Many men loathed her. Many men admired her. It sounds strange, but after a bit people forgot she was a woman and were voting purely on ideology and policy.

I'd vote for Barak but not against Hillary. I can't imagine anyone afraid to tell their families who they voted for in this day and age. Who knows, we may wind up with Hilary and Barak on the same ticket. Of course the Republicans could retaliate and put up McCain and Condalezza. That would be interesting...A good ole boy nightmare, wouldn't you say?
